Castle Semple Volunteers

The practical conservation group is a great way to learn new skills, get fit and meet new people while helping to enhance the wildlife and natural beauty of the regional park.

Main tasks

You will get the chance to take part in a variety of conservation projects. In the past tasks have included: tree planting, path and fence maintenance, willow sculptures and removal of invasive plant species.

Please see our downloads page for the program.

Required skills, qualities & experience

Enthusiasm is more important than skills and experience. If you love being outdoors and enjoy working as part of a small team then the practical conservation group is the ideal volunteer opportunity

Where & When

We meet every Thursday outside the Castle Semple Visitor Centre cafe at 12.30 and session runs until 3.30pm.

Training & support provided

We will provide induction training and teach you how to use the hand-tools required for the tasks.

Any other requirements

Bring suitable outdoor clothing that you don’t mind getting dirty, waterproofs and a packed lunch.
